Interested in working with aspects that are present both in the digital and the physical domains such as multiplicity and modularity, his works frequently explore the ideas of repetition, interaction, chance and change. To look into the new dimensions that the digital world can create in the physical space he primarily works with technology, light, music and space. He uses these elements not only as tools but also likes to draw from the broader cultural context that connects them to popular culture and entertainment, which originates in his own involvement with the electronic music scene and background in engineering.
The artworks he creates often introduce surprising and playful overlaps between the physical and the digital into the public space, where they are confronted with large audiences. His works are not meant to be shown in the traditional space of the white cube, but rather in crowded streets, outdoor festivals or open landscapes where they become a subject to various influences, where they can not only be looked at but also touched and played with. The element of participation is in fact often inherent to the design of Vorwerk’s installations, which are completed with the engagement of the public. Their organic character allows them to continuously change and always be influenced by the context in which they are placed.
Lightholders is a 3 meters high by 15 meters diameter silo containing several audio loops playing in random order and directly sync with light so to make the Sound motion visible to the public.
Using a circular 6 speakers setup, the sound is moving around the public, creating a unique spatial hearing.
The concept of using sound loops and making them visible is inspired by the sound experiments done by Philips in the 60’s and by artists like Dick Raaijmakers. Sound samples are composed by the Dutch duo Walvisnest.
